GREENSBORO, N.C. – For the first time since the 2000 season, the Tufts University women’s soccer team had two players announced as All-Americans as senior Sarah Maloney and junior Liz Reed have received the recognition for the 2019 season.

Maloney and Reed both achieved All-American status for the first time as each was named to the third team. They were the first Jumbo teammates to earn All-American honors in the same season since Randee McArdle and Sara Yeatman in 2000.

Head coach Martha Whiting’s Jumbos finished 14-4-2 this year, the most wins by the program since 2005. Tufts earned the No. 1 seed in the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) this fall and advanced to the “Sweet 16” of the NCAA Tournament.

Reed, a 2017 graduate of Lynnfield High School, led Tufts in scoring with 10 goals and nine assists for 29 points. It was the fifth-best single-season scoring total in Tufts’ history and the most points since 2007. The nine assists tied for the second-most in a season in team history. She had an incredible start to the season, scoring six goals with four assists in the first six games. She also tallied a NESCAC game-winner at Amherst and assisted on two goals against Cortland in the NCAA’s.

Reed was a four-year varsity starter at LHS, a three-time Cape Ann League First Team All-Star and captain of the Pioneers her senior year.
